A Joint Statement from the Boards of Education
JOINT STATEMENT
 
Lake Forest Community High School District 115 Board of Education President David Lane
Lake Forest Elementary School District 67 Board of Education President Justin Engelland
 
Last month, Lake Forest Schools Superintendent Michael V. Simeck announced that he would be leaving the District to become Deerfield District 109 Superintendent, effective July 1, 2021.
 
Superintendent Simeck has informed us of his updated plans to leave the District on March 31, 2021 in order to begin his new role in Deerfield on April 1.
 
Our respective Boards are working together to define next steps for our superintendent search and will keep the community updated in the weeks ahead. We do not expect this new date to impact District operations and are committed to ensuring a smooth transition process.
